i have been constantly craving for Sarawak Laksa since the day i left Bint-ulu two years ago T_T. up till now, i still haven’t found any decent one T_T. the one at Carpenter Street is still slightly different i thought T_T. so yeah if anyone found one at Penang purleeeese let me know okie *big wet eyes*
what i am going to introduce in this post, is another Sarawak food – kolo mee! it’s more widely recognized in Kuching. while kampua, is the Foochow version of kolo mee which you can find it in Sibu! but actually, i can’t really differentiate the both :/ cos kolo mee is not my favourite! Sarawak Laksa IS!
House of Kolo Mee which houses few kinds of kolo mee(duh!).
it’s actually brightly-lit in the cafe, but i donno why the interior turned out so dark. stupid iphone camera!
huge menu on the wall.
other than original kolo mee, they do sell other variants of kolo mee, like in soup version, with chicken or braised pork or seafood as sides, they even take care of vegetarian’s appetite too
the interior is like any other kopitiam.
what so special about this shop is, it’s self-service. meaning you take your own order, wait for it and then serve yourself.
first, go to the back of the shop, there’s this touch screen monitor where you place your order. you can customize your kolo mee too. i had mine without
smelly grass spring onion.
and then you will be given a receipt. and wait till your queue number is shown at the counter.
Braise Combo Kolo Mee | RM 4.50 (R), RM 5 (L)
and tadaa. you serve your own kolo mee to your table and dig in
all three of use had the same one. the original one looks like ordinary wantan mee with minced meat topping :/. instead of char siew, you’ll get braised chicken wing and tofu, a halved egg on a bed of kolo mee!
the mee was springy, and paler in colour compared to wantan mee. i thought the flavour didn’t infuse well into the meat, a little bland. perhaps they could prolong the cooking time. i later learnt that the boss who’s hails from Kuching actually imports all the spices from his home town!
Fried Tofu with Meat Filing | RM 1 per piece
while waiting for our mee, we each had a piece of fried tofu. we only ate them after our plates of mee, hence the exterior had harden and soggy, instead of crispy. but the the filling is fragrant and nice
the boss is also selling Sarawak laksa paste at RM 13 or 14 i forgot. i asked him, why don’t you sell Sarawak laksa? i’ll patronise every week! he said, this paste is expensive, wait till he finds cheaper one, he might consider la.
let’s pray that he faitit found one so that i could satisfy my crave for Sarawak laksa T_T
